Questions about Ottavia
Each modular keyboard has 2 keys to adjust the octave.
The base module is a MIDI controller, it must be connected to a PC, to a MAC or to an expander.
Ottavia can be connected to any DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) software and any Expander with a MIDI input.
The version with the sound module is not yet available.
One module costs 70 €. Discounts are available for those who purchase multiple modules.
Ottavia has a dynamic keybed. The version with weighted keys is not available.
Potentially as many as you want, but a “note” MIDI message can be from 0 to 127. Furthermore, the Expander you use could reproduce a minor number of notes.
The modules can be connected in “series” – Ottavia performs the MIDI merge between IN and OUT – or in parallel, if for example you use the PC, which sees them as separate devices.
Ottavia can be powered via USB, by connecting it to a PC, to a powered USB hub, to the electrical network, or to a power bank. Alternatively you can use a 7V DC power supply.
Questions about accessories
Are the various modules designed for a cabinet that supports them or must they necessarily be placed on a table?
They must have a support surface.
Not at the moment.
Yes, you can connect the sustain pedal.
No, not at the moment, we are working on a 2.0 version that could incorporate a Wi-Fi module. Currently you can still use a MIDI cable with a wi-fi transmitter, which we will soon make available on our Store.
